Unfortunately, cortisone use has spesific indications in psoriasis and should not be used on a chronic basis. I recommend that you use a UV lamp, tarr ointment and a short course of oral antibiotics to treat the cellulitis (hence the puss). You will have to consult a doctor for a prescription for the antibiotics.
Try and get a lot of exposure to sunlight and a swim in the sea will not be a bad idea at all.
